Kiku, or Japanese chrysanthemums, have such lyrical beauty.
These blossoms are as large as cabbages!
Chrysanthemums are in the Asteraceae, or daisy, family. Other composites include zinnias, sunflowers, asters, black- eyed susans, marigolds, and dandelions.
There are many different classes and cultivars of mums.
My favorite species is the spider mum.
